The Internet: Whats the Fuss?
Unless you go to a library or college or you work for a company, government agency or school your connection to the Internet is probably going to be handled by an ISP or Internet Service Provider.
Some ISPs in this area of the country are MindSpring, Access Atlanta, or BellSouth.Com. Some national ISP's are America On-Line (AOL), CompuServe, and Prodigy. These companies provide a phone number for your modem to call and get access to the Internet. Most ISP's also provide free browser software so your computer can surf the Internet.
